At the UBC Aquatic Centre, Erin Epp shaved off a second in her 50 breaststroke, taking the silver medal while also breaking the girls 13-14 club record previously held by Kierra Smith.

Axana Merckx dropped a second in her 50 back, swimming to a silver medal and a new Canadian National and trial time. She also broke club records in both the 50 back and 200IM. Axana added a bronze medal in the 100 back and a fifth place finish in the 200IM.
